Bjorn Bensen was the chief engineer of the terraforming station Velara Base on the planet Velara III. He was assigned, with three other terraformers, to this station by Terraform Command in 2360.

Bensen and his fellow terraformers believed that the planet was lifeless, but were wrong. The terraforming was killing silicon-based lifeforms. These lifeforms attacked Bensen and the rest of the team. In 2364, after discovering the lifeforms, the terraforming project was halted. During a meeting in the observation lounge aboard the USS Enterprise-D, Bensen told Captain Picard that the project director Kurt Mandl and he himself saw strange patterns in the sand when they've started but he would never thought about lifeforms. (TNG: "Home Soil")

Bjorn Bensen was played by actor Gerard Prendergast.
